    If I try to use my iPad while it's charging, the touchscreen acts very strangely and unpredictably. Sometimes it doesn't scroll, other times it magnifies on its own, sometimes buttons get pushed that I didn't press. The minute I unplug the charger, everything is fine. Thanks for any ideas!

    Are you using the supplied charger? This is common with touch screens when you use unofficial chargers the don't work properly.

    Problem Solved!

    You're right! I was using my iPhone charger (which does charge my iPad, albeit slowly) but when I switched to the iPad charger, the erratic touchscreen behavior went away. Thank you for the suggestion! I'm curious to know why this happens. I understand the iPhone charger provides less current to the battery, but I don't understand why this affects how this affects the touchscreen.

    Regardless, I'm grateful I can avoid this problem in the future.
